to only have to cross the hall, to stay in kindergarten forever, pretending to be a fruit, asoft surrounding only after flowering. This, to still be able to cry. This, to pick some pink.to join a sports team, to wake up early and see how much blue you could swallow in a day. To compete at math to show the blush between you, to befriend the bully on the day he left and feel grateful. To share your name.I didn't grow while outgrowing, had to guess what to cultivate. A naked run across the night wet grass always ending toweled. Each year a different flower my favorite of my mother's garden. Difficult to pinpoint
fear of self, uncoiled.
Once there were three boys who loved each other. They never saw each other again.
